The resort, smaller than many, is attached to the Sea Aquarium, so you get free passes (good for your entire stay) to enter the Sea Aquarium (many hands-on offerings, and sea lion and dolphin shows). We stayed in a junior suite, which lacked a kitchen (just microwave, coffee brewer, and tiny fridge--along with a few dishes and silverware), had a...

My friend and I stayed at The Royal Sea Aquarium. The place is fantastic. Beautiful view, great customer service, great room; but the room was dirty when we arrived, in addition the room smelled bad. Like mold .... It is sad that The administration has not done something to fix this problem. I really hope the clean and take care...

Spent 2 weeks here in Nov 2013 at this marvelous location adjacent to the Sea Aquarium, offering a private beach and wonderful views of the sea from our bedroom window. The only downside was the onsite restaurant Augusto's (see separate TA review). Not to worry, there are at least 3 very good healthy eating establishments to be found within a...

The resort location was good for us as we travel to Curacao to dive. The dive shop was a few minutes walk away as was the Sea Aquarium (admission included with resort stay). We found the room to be one of the quietest we have stayed in. All rooms have an ocean view which makes for a pleasant surrounding. The...

An excellent vacation. The room faced the ocean and looking out made you feel like you were on a cruise. The current and waves make it seem like you are moving and you will NEVER be closer to water in a hotel. The staff was very cordial and housekeeping did a great job. A walk down the beach provided shopping...

We thoroughly enjoyed our week here in September. The staff was excellent. We were pleased to debunk some of the negative comments that we had seen in prior reviews. The private beach on the canal was not too rocky, the presence of the submarine crane was not distracting, the room cleaning schedule was very satisfactory, and the overall condition of...

We traded our timeshare week for a 2 bedroom unit. The unit was in building A ocean front and the views were wonderful. Many people suggest trying to get a unit facing the acquarium but I think those rooms can get noisy. I only see it as a value if you have children. This review is difficult to write because...

We are not owners at this or any other resort. I booked online based on the reviews and am VERY happy with my choice - I will recommend this resort to anyone going to Curacao.

I am convinced that many of the "reviews" listed here are not from actual guests. As I write this, I am sitting here and looking at my surroundings in room A201 which is a two bedroom. From what appears to be beard trimmings around the sink in the bathroom, to dried crumbs around the microwave, to doors going onto the...
